On-bail broadcaster Kwasi Kyei Darkwah failed to turn up in court Thursday for hearing in the rape case involving him and a 19-year-old girl, Ewureffe Orleans Thompson.
According to Starr News’ Wilberforce Asare, State prosecutors pressing charges against the fashion icon were furious at his inability to show up in court.
This is the second time KKD has failed to show up in his trial.
State prosecutors have accused KKD of forcibly having sex with Ewureffe Orleans Thompson in a hotel washroom, although he insists the act was consensual.
Even though the 19-year-old lady says she wants to discontinue the case, and the accused has also apologised to the lady publicly, state prosecutors are bent on seeking legal redress for the alleged crime.
Prosecutors had earlier questioned the authenticity of that letter purported to have been written by Ms. Thompson.
